I finally finished the Siren Shawl! I zipped straight through the last ball of Sea Song and finished it last night at the Handknit Heroes KAL at A Likely Yarn. I had already made the KAL project so I worked on the shawl.
I finished only a few books this week but I have soooo many in the ready to be bound stage. *Fingers Crossed* I’ll have a huge lot of books to post next Friday.
These pamphlets are made from recycled packing material. I stamped them with various little words and phrases.
I’ve been asked before by several other bookbinders if I have a book press, which is a no, and then, well, what do you use. I have a Book, book press. It’s several huge Art History books and Masonite boards. Oh, and a big’ol can of pineapple juice.
I said in my last post that I thought I had about 50 books in progress. I counted and I was off a bit…. like thirty off. I have EIGHTY books in various stages. About half of them are ready to be bound or within a step or two of being ready to be bound. I’m almost out of supplies O.O I have one sheet of book board left and about thirty sheets of Mohawk superfine paper left. I have plenty of cover papers but not very much book cloth. I think once I get though the eighty in progress and add it to the two boxes of already completed ones that I’ll feel ready for the festival. I just hope I can get it all done in time.
